One of the founding fathers of House Music, Jesse Saunders, new book, “In Their Own Words,” tells the story of Disco and house music from those who lived it, loved it, and discovered it along the way.
Disco and House Music introduced a sentiment of love, peace, and beats to the Chicago youth and teens in the 1980s, and from that seed, it became the global phenomenon that we see today.
The book features 83 individual stories from people from Chicago and around the world detailing when they fell in love with house music, and the role house music played in their lives.
The book is a beautiful description of how house music touched so many during the 80s and 90s.
Detailing the timeline of the origination of house music, from how it emerged from the days of Disco to now, with so many proclaiming themselves to be “House Heads,” Jesse Saunders captures why house music remains more than a musical genre but a lifestyle that promotes love, peace, and unity.
